Seven Most Discrediting Media Screw-Ups of 2016


Notable mistakes from a year of astounding mainstream press bias and incompetence.

The mainstream media was arguably the biggest loser of the 2016 presidential election. Time and again, the press engaged in unprecedented hackery in order to advance an agenda, and time and again they screwed up — big league.

The man responsible for causing most of the myriad unforced errors from the press corps was Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, now the president-elect. Trump drove the media crazy — crazy enough to make mistakes. They took their eye off the ball so much, they forgot what game they were playing.


The media became blinded by partisanship and lost sight of its primary function of serving as an impartial referee. The historic bias of the press drove them to make grand mistakes. They are the epic media screw-ups of 2016.

  1. The MSDM will continue to ignore the truth and the voters repudiation of Obama and Clinton until they self destruct. If anyone thought they were slanted and biased before Trump’s election, just wait until he starts to keep his promises. If things work out properly, this election could see the complete destruction of the biased MSDM.

  2. MadCow will be relegated to working a street corner peddling her dyke ass to fat ugly frustrated females looking for something different. Rachel deserves what is coming for her.

  3. “lost sight of its primary function of serving as an impartial referee”. since when? The media has always existed to promote the owner/operators personal preferences, and make money. Media has a mixed result on that making money thing lately.
    “Impartial journalism” is another false leftist construct.

  4. If anything, this will only get worse. We will probably see BMO give more press conferences in the first 100 days of the Trump presidency than we saw in the 8 years he was president.
